The Vatican has opened an official VR NFT gallery to promote democracy in art. The new VR experience was created in partnership with Sensorium VR and Humanity 2.0, a Vatican nonprofit. It aims to remove barriers that prevent people from thriving and cooperating.
Although it is unclear if these Vatican NFTs will be available for sale, it is exciting to see them using NFT technology.
The Vatican NFT gallery will showcase unique art
The Vatican, officially Vatican City State, is a city-state inside Rome, Italy. It is a sacred site, particularly for the Catholic church. Its presence dates back more than a thousand years. Some of the collection will be preserved by the Vatican as NFTs.
Humanity 2.0 plays a massive role in Web 3.0 support at the Vatican. Father Philip Larrey is the company’s chairman. He is also the author of books on technology, artificial intelligence and other topics.
In a statement about the Vatican NFT gallery, Father Larrey said, “We look forward to working with Sensorium to explore ways to democratise art, making it more widely available to people worldwide regardless of their socio-economic and geographical limitations.”
Vatican City is the world’s smallest country and has its own laws and rules. The artwork and other items within are priceless and an important part of world history.
St Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel are some notable fixtures within the city. Art, statues, and more can be seen at the historic site. In total, there are over 70,000 works in the Vatican Museum. These include Raphael and Leonardo Da Vinci art. These artworks will be displayed by the Vatican to those who use NFTs.
